Default Uninstalling Nvidia drivers

I recently installed the latest nvidia driver 169.12 and it has not worked correctly. everytime on start up it just goes to black and white text interface and i have to change the drivers back to basic. all i want to know is how to uninstall the drivers completely from my system so that i can use envy instead. i have already tried reinstalling through envy but it does not fix the problem. i have also used the uninstaller located in envy and it still is unable to uninstall the driver. i am using linux mint (pretty much ubuntu 7.10) my kernel is 2.6.22-14

Try this:

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run --uninstall

P.S: Change the *.run file with the one you have installed.

You can also simply run nvidia-installer --uninstall, which is useful if you no longer have the .run file and don't want to have to download it again.
